The Model Y is Tesla’s latest vehicle to their all-electric lineup, and many people think it will quickly become the most successful best-selling Tesla ever. After becoming a Tesla owner myself in 2018 I’ve helped thousands of people make the decision of whether to buy a Tesla or not, and in this video I’ll share my full in-depth review of a Tesla Model Y that I rented for a week so you can find out if it actually lives up to the hype. Tesla says the Model Y is a fully electric mid-size sport utility vehicle, but it can also be considered a compact crossover because it’s based on the same platform of Tesla’s cheaper Model 3 sedan and shares about 75% of the same parts, with the biggest differences being Model Y’s bigger cargo space and a powered lift gate hatchback instead of a manual trunk. This particular Model Y is a midnight silver Long Range AWD with 20” Induction wheels, 5-seat black interior and basic Autopilot. The total cost after sales tax was right around $60,000. So as you can see from its price tag, the Model Y is considered a luxury vehicle. But is it worth that much money? Tesla Model Y has an attractive design and provides the best things about the Model 3 with even more space at an elevated view, while being much more affordable than Tesla’s only other SUV - the Model X. The Model Y is pretty much the only option for people who want a fully electric hatchback vehicle with at least 300 miles of range, along with the high level of performance and quickness.

    No HUD for safety, im used to see everything on the window screen, the big ass tablet is nice but i still need it on the wind screen, seats are not ventialeted, no massage in the seats i got kinda used to that, no heated steering wheel? U missed out these things. Lane assistance, human detection, cameras front, back and top ok like it, have it. Hows the interior in the front? Soft leather on the doors or plastic? Acceleration is sweet. Cant wait when governments will allow auto pilot. Ps im pretty sure the silver to black handle is just cost reduction, if people would prefer black, than it just be an option. Good review, a bit on the Tesla side. Hope that my next car will be Tesla

    I'm impressed...but not 60K worth. Visibility is the issue with most new vehicles, so wake me up when the Y can at least tell you when someone's in the next lane -- my 9-year-old Edge has done that since birth. You hit the nail when you mentioned the distraction of a Cinemascope screen to distract from the road for doing controls, and a drop-box sized mail slot rear window, hey, I agree with the wife. And then there's fit and finish? eww-w-wh!

    I have ordered the Model Y. I test drove it and love it! Love your review of the car, too. Thank you. Two things I'm concerned about: 1. When my car arrives, will I have cosmetic issues? 2. The home charging station. I didn't realize I was going to need an electrician to install a specific charger so that the car is fully charged to drive to work the next day. I don't like that Tesla did away with the chrome around the windows and on the side mirrors. Hard to believe that a majority of people didn't like those. Wish there was an option to have the chrome and also I wish you could get the same colors in all of the models. I really wanted the lighter silver for the Model Y and I like the 19" wheels that are extra to buy on the Model 3 but you can't get the same wheel on the Model Y. Anything to make more money, I'm sure. :-( Thanks again for the detailed overview of the Model Y!

    What an excellent video. I am a bit on the fence hear about ordering my model Y. Your informative and extremely well done presentation has really helped. My biggest challenge now is installing a charge. My first attempt was with the electrician say it would cost close to $5000 to expand the electric/breaker and permitting. Since I only have a bout a 20 mile a day commute, I am considering just charging with my regular house current.

    fyi for those who have a 3 and wants to upgrade to a y. Tesla low balls you on a trade in price, and I don't resell cars (I've always donated them) Carvana gave me 7k more than Tesla. just takes about a week for them to do their thing (if you're paying off a prior loan like my 2019 model 3) of course it all depends on the year, milage, and condition.

  • steve

    Selling my 3 and getting a new Y (new this year heated steering wheel too). Really like your idea of side view mirror lane change on the screen. Since I don't do social media could you suggest something for me? We all go over the speed limit and I found out we can get an audible notification when we do but it only notifies you once (and we all stay over the speed limit on occasion) so what I'd like to see is that when you go over the speed limit, the mph numbers on the screen turn red and stays red until you go back to the posted speed limit (or lower). You did a great description video by the way thanks. My big gripe is they no longer include the 220v adapter to plug into the nema plug. that's real cheap of them for the price they charge for the car.

    I feel cheated not having a cargo cover. Probably not very useful, but I think is a feature that should be added or available. I will get a model 3, but the main reason for getting a Tesla is the infrastructure. There are nicer EVs out there, but the infrastructure for charging is very lacking.

    Just got my model y over the weekend and I definitely have to agree about the doors. You have to give a good amount of force to close them. My entire family has to open multiple times to close. I could only imagine how hard they would be to close without the window vent feature when you open and shut the door and it cracks window for you to lessen cabin pressure. Great vehicle all around and nothing that would prevent me from buying another.

    I agree with the others that your video was very informative, I've been looking at everything dealing with Tesla for years now ever since the first roadster came out. Your content was spot on I don't know if you had gotten the latest updates that give you Boombox, and can change horn sounds etc. Also a little more info on different drive & steering modes. I'm still learning can't wait for the next update.

    I got mine in December 1st 2021 with the cast rear end fit & finish 99.999% perfect. Blue, 20" wheels had my first nail in the tire yesterday resulting in a slow leak. Took the tire off myself and had a patch repair (don't ever use a plug) First 2 places I took the car wouldn't touch it (batteries underneath) so I just jacked up the car at the locations underneath that can be jacked up & fixed the tire for a fraction of the cost of other alternatives. That includes the dealer. Loving the driving experience, specially in Standard mode.

    I can't stand the Tesla car, not much to look at in the inside - boring with that oversized TV that controls everything - not fun. These cars cost too much money when it is not worth it, and they have a lot of problems being all computerized. The battery is expensive and will have to be changed in about 4 years - thousands of dollars. I see these on the street and they don't get a second look from me because other nice looking cars are better looking and fun to drive. Don't want a Tesla.

    I’ve known I’ve wanted my next car to be electric. My brother in LA bought a Model 3 and loves it. My current SUV had an expensive service, likely the first of more to come. Started researching EV’s and quickly realized there is Tesla and there is everyone else. Started extensive research into Model 3 and drove one. A little worried about the low seating height (at my age 😂). Only yesterday decided that Model Y is a better choice for me for not much more money. Started researching Model Y and discovered this video. Fantastic job! I echo others here in lavishing praise for your work. It’s long, and I watched it in shifts. But on other videos I check out after awhile. I watched every second of this one and there is no fluff. You cover everything so well and without the annoying side discussion unrelated to the topic too many amateurs suffer from. I spent a year creating a little technology channel and I applaud your production and delivery of such quality. I watched. I liked. I subscribed. Best wishes!
